About the Union for Radical Political Economics
The Union for Radical Political Economics (URPE) was founded in the summer of 1968, when graduate students and faculty from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Harvard University and Radcliffe College held a working meeting in Ann Arbor just a few weeks before the National Democratic Party Convention in Chicago.
Some of the founding members include Sam Bowles, Barry Bluestone, Gene Coyle, Herb Gintis, Art MacEwan, John Pool, Michael Reich, Tom Weisskopf, and Howard Wachtel. URPE’s core purpose is to be an alternative professional organization for left political economists and an intellectual home for academics, policy-makers, and activists who are interested in participating in a left intellectual debate on theoretical and policy issues.
